In most cases the problems with ejaculation are psychological in origin, and not related to any physical deficiency. A man may be ‘sexually inadequate’ with one partner, while performing quite normally with the other. The two main issues describing ejaculation problems come from the opposite sides of the spectrum: premature ejaculation and inability to ejaculate at all.
Premature ejaculation is a very common phenomenon, especially in young inexperienced males. As a rule, it is a sign of performance anxiety. It takes place either at the start of the coitus or soon after. In extreme cases it may even occur before any physical contact is made.
Inability to ejaculate is not nearly as common as premature ejaculation brought on by anxiety. It may be caused by excessive use of alcohol or drugs, other overindulgences, or just not enough penile stimulation. It is sometimes observed in older people, due to their loss of penile sensitivity.
In order to combat one’s ejaculation problems a person needs to maintain a relaxing and non-stressed regimen, while complementing their diet with more relaxing and calming foods and herbs.
Starting your day with the breakfast of oatmeal will provide a tonic for your nerves, relax and calm you, and help cope with whatever to face whatever problems you might encounter.
The calming effects of valerian root are legendary. Just combine it with some skullcap in a tea and drink three times daily to calm the nervous system.
Herbal remedies like saw palmetto and damiana affect the hormonal system, as they stimulate the male reproductive system and restore nerves.
Another way to fight stress and anxiety is to take a bath infused with a blend of lavender, geranium and bergamot oils.
Avoid caffeine or any other stimulants. Increase your intake of B vitamins.
Try taking the Rescue Remedy before intercourse – it should help you relax and calm down. It is even used to calm panic attacks and aid car accident victims.
(Note: The Rescue Remedy is an equal blend of Cherry Plum, Rock rose, Impatiens, Clematis, and Star of Bethlehem flower remedies developed by Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath, in the 1930s to rebalance the body after any emotional or physical upsets.).
Recent studies have linked some instances of premature ejaculation to magnesium deficiency, which seems to be pretty common in the US. An adult male needs to take 400 mg of magnesium daily. Foods, rich in magnesium are pumpkin and squash seeds (150 mg per ounce) black beans ( 120 mg per cup), cooked spinach (157 mg per cup), halibut (170 mg in ½ a filet), as well as broccoli, peanuts, oysters, scallops, and some others.
